Ron Interviews His IDF Daughter (Maoz Podcast – Bonus Video) from maozisrael on Vimeo.

Each week, I’m proud to host the “Maoz Israel Report Podcast”.

This week’s episode celebrates my family’s 10 year aliyah anniversary, marking a decade since I, my wife and our 3 daughters immigrated to Israel!

The podcast features an interview with my youngest daughter who is currently serving in the Israeli Defense Forces. It was filmed in the Golan Heights.

This video version allows you to watch the interview. But to hear the entire podcast including my conversation with my wife Elana, you can:


10 years ago today, we moved to Israel! On this special edition, my co-host is my wife Elana!  We discuss what it was like moving to Israel, from America, a decade ago.
